iPhone 4 Antenna Issue Affects Transmission as Well [Video]

The iPhone 4 has been widely criticized for an antenna issue that affects reception. Now it's been discovered that transmission is affected as well.

YouTube user and iPhone 4 owner Mike "Mself27" has posted a video demonstrating the problem.

Demonstration of the new iPhone 4 showing problems with TRANSMISSION as well as reception. Note the substantial signal degradation (and subsequent audio dropout) at 2:45-2:50 and 2:58-3:01. By simply MOVING MY FINGER along the side of the iPhone, I can get the call to drop signal and audio!!

Take a look at the video below...

I've noticed that bluetooth connectivity drops too as I touch both sides of the antennas.

Now I am not saying that certain cell phones are the best and flawless...they all have their issues, however, it seems as though that through the track record of Apple and their product releases, that they have become more disconnected from their customers wants and wishes and concerns and more focused on, “Get it out, FAST!” The fact that they take the customization process out of their technology is sad for the end user. When will the day come that they apply this mindset to their computer systems. Forcing us all to have to abide by the APPLE only way or you don’t get anything for your systems.

I found a solution! Dress up your iPhone 4 with an iPhone 4 Bumper. Choose one of six colors — white, black, blue, green, orange, or pink — and slip it around the edge of your iPhone 4.
